    TH Ten To Follow Competition 2021 / 2022

    The TTF competition this season runs from Friday October 22nd 2021 (Cheltenham’s opening fixture) to Saturday May 1st 2022 inclusive.

    We are indebted to Maruco (£100 to overall winner) and archie (£50 to top scoring Dark Horse) who once again have offered to sponsor the competition.The rules and conditions for the Ten To Follow competition are as follows:

    Each forum member may select TWO TEAMS.

    For each team select NINE horses from the list of 200 horses below and add ONE Dark Horse i.e one horse of your own choice which is not on the list, TEN IN TOTAL. In the event a team is submitted which contains more than nine list horses, only the first nine horses will count. If any of the first nine horses contain a horse not in the list of 200 horses, that horse will be omitted.

    Teams must be submitted in alphabetical order with the Dark Horse as Horse Number 10.The Dark Horse ONLY must be followed by the name of its trainer.In any one team no more than three horses, including the Dark Horse, shall be from the same stable. Any team subsequently found to have breached that rule once the competition starts will be disqualified. Note teams not in alphabetical order will not be accepted.

    Entries which have been "thanked" or “liked” indicate the entry has been accepted.

    Closing date and time for entries is the start of the first race at Cheltenham which is 13.55 PM on Friday October 22nd 2021. In the event the Forum is down or you prefer to keep your dark horse(s) to yourself until after entries close, entries can be PM’d or emailed to thediamondgeezer@virginmedia.com.


    If there are any disputes during the TTF competition, my decision, after consulting with the relevant sponsors, will be final.

    *** Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the list of 200 horses includes horses who will be running at some point during this season, this cannot be absolutely guaranteed. ***


    Good luck everyone.



    Points are awarded for National Hunt races in the UK and Ireland only and scoring is as follows, UK prize money in £ or Irish prize money in € as published in the RP.

    BONUS POINTS
    Bonus points according to the official Tote Win Dividend in £ or € as printed in the RP for both Britain and Ireland, will also be awarded as follows. If no Tote Win Dividend is declared, the SP will determine any bonus points. Should neither a Tote Win Dividend nor a SP be returned, bonus points will not apply.

    4 to 6...................4 points
    Over 6 to 10........6 points
    Over 10 to 14....10 points
    Over 14 to 20....15 points
    Over 20 to 33....20 points
    Over 33...............40 points

    Dark Horses will score DOUBLE bonus points.

    The official result on the day will be used for the calculation of points with any subsequent disqualification disregarded
    Points updates will be posted on Sunday evenings as of Sunday November 15th 2021 and each evening during the Cheltenham Festival as well as other occasions where there is a significant change to the leader board towards the end of the competition. During the Festival these may of convenience feature the top scoring entries only.

    In the event of a tie at the close of the competition, the player whose Dark Horse has accumulated the most points shall be declared the winner. If there is still a tie, prize monies for the TTF will be divided equally amongst the players concerned.
    No substitutions will be allowed for the duration of this competition, although amendments may be made to your ten to follow teams prior to the start of the competition by making a new posting up to the closing date and time but please try and keep these to a minimum.
